The expected drop will result from the smaller 1964 crops, said J. Carroll Bottum, agriculture economist with Purdue University. Lower poultry and stock and feeder cattle prices also were forecast; Bottum made the predictions during the annual Agricultural jutiook meeting, held at the Tipton 4-H and Community Building. The forecasts, and a look at the longer range competitive position of Hoosier farmers, were made at a dozen Outlook meetings throughout, the state. They are the first of about 60 si'ch public gatherings which will be held before October 21. 'Bottum also said higher hog prices in the year ahead are expected to more than offset smaller marketings, with feed cattle marketings and prices slightly higher. Returns from cattle feeding will improve modestly because of lower anticipated feeder cattle prices. ., Indiana farmers likely will receive higher prices for their corn and soybeans; in the coming year, Bottum added. However, dairymen can expect little change in milk prices, with egg, 'iroiler and turkey prices slightly lower. Bottum also forecast general business expansion with employment and available labor increasing at about the same rate. This would have unemployment, near jcurrent levels. Consumer pricks,"'• particularly for services, are expected to rise slightly,. " ' Following afe details of the Indiana outlook. CORN: Prices are expected to average five to 10 cents high- 3r for the next marketing year, largely because of reduced production. Storage: should offer modest profit opportunities this fall, particularly in corn deficit areas. Next summer prices are expected to average $1.15-$1.25 n surplus area, io to 20 cents a bushel higher in deficit areas. . SOYBEANS: Prices for the crop marketing year ahead are sxpected to average S2.55-S2.65 a ibushel, compared to $2.54 the •past-year. Whenever the, price reaches or passes the high end if this range, it would appear to be a good time to sell. WHEAT: Soft red winter wheat will' likely increase in orice only about enough to cover storage costs this fall and vinter. Wheat prices are likely to stay near the loan rate ($1.30 for the 1964 crop—$1.25 for the 1965 crop. HO.GS: Prices are expected to average moderately above 'hose of the last year. This was $15.70 per hundredweight at In- iianapolis. For the October through December period prices may average $1 or more above j the $15.16 level of a year earlier. The, hog-corn fed ratio should be slightly more favorable than average. BEEF CATTLE: Higher pro(Continued from page 6) ARTHA SCHULENBURG T.H.S.

Physicians said the bleeding had caused an accumulation of toxic products in Hoover's bloodstream which the elder statesman could not overcome. This morning his heart began to fail. At his bedside were his two children, Herbert Hoover Jr., former under, secretary of state, and Allan Hoover. Hoover's wife, Lou Henry Hoover, died in 1944. The .body of the revered elder, statesman taljfen to Washington to lie in state in the Great Rotunda of. the nation's capital after he lies in state for two days in New York's St. Bartholomew's Protestant Episcopal Church. Final funeral services will bo held in his native town, West I Branch, Iowa, followed by burial at the National 'Park on the site of the small cottage, where he was born. Hoover, one of the great humanitarians of World War I and the post war period, lived for years in the shadow of the disastrous economic depression which occurred during his administration. But he emerged a again-in World War II and its aftermath as a revered participant in domestic and World affairs. Hoover, who was 90 last August 10, had the distinction of living longer as an ex-president than any other chief executive, although John Adams lived six months longer in his 90th year than Hoover. His death left only two former presidents — Harry S Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Hoover had been more or less inactive since last February when he was bedded by an old kidney ailment and a respiratory condition. He had his gall bladder removed in 1958, underwent surgery for a growth in his bowel in 1962, and was stricken by anemia and intestinal bleeding in 1963. His survival after each of these setbacks was described Coolidge. But he was proudest of services to Democratic Pre; dent Woodrow Wilson in Won : War I when he headed up relief services in Europe and distributed over $5 billion worth r I food between 1914 and 1923. He headed the European fooi program again in 1947 f- President Truman and hea.!: two federal commissions for ti::- reorganization of the executive branch under Truman and Eisenhower. The economies recommended by the Hoover coin- missions . saved the American people an estimated $4 billi;:".- Hoover made^his last offici.ii public appearance in 1962 on his SSth birthday at the dedication of the $500,000 Herbc/t Hoover Library in his hometown, West Branch, Iowa. He addressed 45,000 people on hand and the nation "as the shadows gather around me."' In that address, the former President harked back to his boyhood, when orphaned by the death -of his parents, he left West Branch at the age of 10 to go to Oregon to be reared by an uncle, a country doctor. "The only material assets I had were two dimes in my pocket, the suit of' clothes .1 wore, and I had some extra underpinnings provided by loving" aunts," he recalled of his departure. He was reared in the quiet faith of the Quaker meeting and the necessity of being frugal. After completing school in the' west, he cut short a budding beginning in business to accept the advice of an engineer and enter the then new Stanford University to study engineering. He was graduated in.'. Stanford's first class, in - 1895. It was at the university that he met Lou Henry, a geology-student, whom he married in 189D, after already establishing himself as. a mining engineer in the gold fields of the West and then in Australia. By the time he was 24, Hoover was earning $20,000-a-year managing mining interests in China.
